Opening essay (by Sara Yorke Stevenson) of this issue is about establishing a children's museum of industrial art in the "capacious basement of Memorial Hall". Stevenson urges readers not to be "discouraged by the incompleteness of the present beginning, and remember that 'a finished museum is a dead museum' and a dead museum is more useless than a dead horse."
"School Notes" on pages 59-61. Much discussion again about war-related activities, including the conducting of a School of Occupational Therapy, "whic opens October 2d", 1918. Mentions the National Security League activities (p. 59); the drafting of instructor Henry C. Pitz into the service (p. 59); student poster competitions (p. 60); the death of former student Leon W. Corson (p. 61).
